I Noticed with Avalon we got a lot of sword wands, But Music in mid-evil times settings was also very important, i was hoping for a sackbut (Old name for Trombone) Or a Trumpet wand, despite the flutes from one of the bundles. (
All of these instruments were made and in use During the 15th century)

Sorry, but I don't agree with you.
By the time the sackbut came around, the Middle Ages had ended.

The kind of trumpet used in the Middle Ages, actually had no valves, like the ones you see today. This style, in length would be closer to a staff, instead of a wand.

The flute that is used in the game, that comes with one of the bundle packs, is a snake charmer's flute or pungi. Some consider this to be closer to a clarinet, instead of a flute.

The flute itself, actually predates the middle ages, by a few thousand years.

I'm not trying to give a history lesson.
But the legend of King Arthur is based on some fact.
He is said to have lived about 1500 years ago.
